i would try this - but there's probably better ways

convert wall to editable poly, in edge mode select the inner edge of the wall all the way around - under edit edges roll out choose make shape from selection - then select the new shape and you should be able to apply the sweep modifier

Sweep Modifier has to be used on splines. you can either select edges(should be contiguous) > Create Shape from Selection (in edit poly) or Create a spline and sweep that.
